Medicaid Long-Term Services and Supports in Maryland: The Autism Waiver, FY 2006 to FY 2009. A Chart Book.
This series of chart books, entitled Medicaid Long-Term Supports and Services in Maryland, summarizes demographic, service utilization, and expenditure data for state fiscal years 2006 through 2009 on four Maryland Medicaid waiver programs—the Older Adults Waiver, the Living at Home Waiver, the Autism Waiver, and the Medical Day Care Services Waiver—and on nursing facility utilization among Maryland Medicaid recipients. These chart books, prepared for the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, are intended to monitor trends in these programs. Hilltop updates the chart books annually. The Autism Waiver Chart Book provides information on Maryland Medicaid participants who receive services through this program, which provides home and community-based services to children from the age of 1 year through the end of the school year in which the child turns 21. The Autism Waiver is administered by the Maryland State Department of Education.
